MOSCOW, May 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Railroad companies of Russia, CIS and Baltic republics switched to a new schedule at midnight, Moscow time. The schedule will be in effect until the end of May 2013, Russian Railroads told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
There will be 596 pairs of passenger trains, the same as in the previous schedule. A total of 494 train pairs will travel on domestic routes, 93 train pairs on CIS routes and 14 train pairs on routes outside of the CIS space. “Some trains will make shuttle trips all the year round, while they were available only in particular seasons previously,” the company said.
In all, there will be 243 train pairs on the post-Soviet space, including 91 provided by Russian Railroads, 32 by Ukraine, 45 by Belarus, 14 by Kazakhstan, 13 by Uzbekistan and others by Tajikistan, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Armenia. There will be eleven train pairs operating on the parity basis.
There will be four new routes, namely Minsk-Almaty, St. Petersburg-Lvov, Astrakhan-Volgograd-Odessa and Lugansk-Moscow.
There is a new schedule for commuter trains, too. Railroad companies asked passengers to bear the new schedule in mind while planning their trips.
